Five points in five games and another victory for RK Zagreb in the EHF Champions League. RK Zagreb won two points against Pelister. Good work against Kolstad and Aalborg, it should have been confirmed against Peliester as well. And that was done.

In Šoštarić’s first match on the bench of RK Zagreb, his methods did not differ from those he had in RK Lokomotiva and the women’s national team. According to the status of RK Zagreb, he should have done the job easily.

The match wasn’t pretty, but the points were memorable. RK Zagreb was not the favorite in any EHF Champions League match for three seasons. This season, that changed, and that against a team that still doesn’t have a single point. The hosts of the match are not Barcelona or Paris SG to do things routinely, but still, it was necessary to do the game and win. The task was successful.

There are no easy games in the Champions League, today is proof.

Nenad Šoštarić, RK Zagreb coach

RK Zagreb did a good job defensively at the beginning of the game, but it didn’t work offensively. RK Zagreb had a bad time in the first half. The result was 10:10. RK Zagreb acted sluggishly and slowly in attack.

Since Nenad Šoštarić led RK Zagreb for the first time, Faljić and Sirotić were also in the team’s starting line-up. The changes did not bring anything good, and the score at halftime indicated that something had to change. RK Zagreb should have woken up and accelerated.

Pelister was patient, and RK Zagreb needed to get used to that situation in the match. The Macedonians did their tasks on the field, and RK Zagreb had less and less time. The hosts wake up, and with time they separate to a greater and greater difference. The final score was 27:18. With this, RK Zagreb achieved its second victory.
